What we say: 3.5 stars

Les Manguiers (The Mango Trees) is a hidden away retreat a couple of kilometres north of Kampot town, down a bumpy dirt road and on the east bank of the Kampot River among rice fields. A range of separate buildings, each with unique decor and prices, dot the riverside landscape. While accommodation is available in the main two-storey house, the best option here is the wooden houses spread out through, you guessed it, a mango grove. These bungalows are spacious, private and countryside cute - but some of the cold water bathrooms are unfinessed and disappointing. The larger two- and three-bedroom stilt houses are newer and more chic, with lounge areas great for families. A dining area and several wooden porches for lounging hang over the river, facing the sunset. The more active will want to hire the kayaks, which are available to scoot around on the river, and if your timing's right, the river is aglow with phosphorescence at night making for a special swimming experience. Les Manguiers is perhaps a little overpriced for the standard, particularly given its isolation, but if you're after a few sleepy days by the river you could do far worse. Popular with Phnom Penh expat families, it can get busy on weekends -- especially holiday weekends -- when the kids compete with the geese in the noisy stakes.
